Burghound Symposium 2017: Gala Dinner
This is the centrepiece event in our Allen Meadows Burghound Symposium. Here we celebrate in traditional Burgundy “paulée” style, all of us attending sharing bottles, magnums, jeroboams (!), from our cellars for old friends at our table, and new friends around the room. It was already a huge success in 2015, and grew by 50% in 2016. This year, to keep it to just the right scale, numbers will be strictly capped. So don’t delay securing your seats/tables as we anticipate this will be over-subscribed. The core of Hong Kong’s Burgundy-loving community attend, along with visitors from Europe, USA, and across Asia. This year, in a further enhancement, Laurence Mortet (Domaine Denis Mortet), Claude Dugat (Domaine Dugat), Guillaume Rouget (Domaine Emmanuel Rouget), Gérard Harmand (Domaine Harmand-Geoffory), Charles van Canneyt (Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat) and Allen Meadows will also participate. It is a truly lovely aspect of Burgundy that this type of dinner exemplifies the generosity, friendship, and natural sense to share the passion with others.
This is a BYO Burgundy event – the chance to pull from the cellar your special bottles, mature rarities, and – especially – those large format bottles that were just made for nights like this. (Of course, if you need help, we have a list of wines available for you to purchase – just let us know and we’ll be sure to have you well equipped for the night).
